Joan Stanley is a softly spoken librarian, who is a beloved member of her local community. Out of the blue, police knock at her door and Joan’s grown-up son Nick is dumbfounded when authorities accuse Joan of operating as an undercover operative for the Russians for more than 50 years. A media storm swirls around Joan and her loved ones as police attempt to extract a confession from the pensioner, who proclaims her innocence.
